Dining at Paradise Inn

With the fluctuation of increased Covid cases and the new strains making it very difficult to ensure we operate safely and effectively for all parties and maintain the service standards we strive to uphold for our guests. We have our protocols in place, however with the variables of staffing changes, we are continuing to reevaluate ways to maintain a safe working environment and provide the best possible experience for our associates and all park visitors.  We understand your disappointment and would like to offer you a variety of alternate dining options in the area.
